‘What’s the Deal?’ With Betting on the Oscars: 12 Dark Horses That Could Win You Money (Video)

TheWrap’s film reporter and amateur awards gambler Jeff Sneider reveals which underdogs could surprise

The Oscars are Sunday, which means it’s time to place your bets with online oddsmakers and Las Vegas casinos. There are a dozen hotly-contested races that are wide open, and it’s anyone’s guess who will take the stage at the Dolby.

TheWrap’s film reporter and amateur gambler Jeff Sneider has analyzed the field and come up with a well-researched list of Oscar bets that it may be worth your while to make.

This is the one time of year when industry observers may have a leg up on professional oddsmakers, as there continues to be confusion regarding the following categories — actor, adapted screenplay, documentary, foreign language film, original song, hair and makeup, visual effects, sound mixing, sound editing and all three short film categories.

Watch the video to find out what you could do to win money this year, but don’t blame Sneider if you lose. That’s the risk you’ll have to take if you want to give a victory speech like Julianne Moore, J.K. Simmons and Patricia Arquette.
